Crucible & Fisheye
This page gives an explanation of the relationship between Crucible and FishEye
- FishEye allows you to extract information from your source code repository and display it in sophisticated reports.
- Crucible allows you to request, perform and manage code reviews.
FishEye and Crucible are two separate products that are highly integrated with one another. Both tools use the same architecture, i.e. when you install one, the other is automatically installed with it. They can then be licensed separately, or they can also be both licensed.
We recommend that you run Crucible together with FishEye because you can significantly enhance your Crucible experience by also using FishEye. If you choose to run Crucible alone without FishEye, you will have access to your repositories via the "light" FishEye implementation bundled with Crucible. However, a number of FishEye's advanced features will not be available to you, including pre-caching repository content (for improved performance), the ability to search and browse through repositories, FishEye's activity graphs and reporting.
It can definitely be a bit confusing to start out with FishEye and Crucible, which is why we recommend doing a free 30 day evaluation of both tools.
